  • WHAT WE THINK: Where should the money go?

    We usually avoid state or national commentary preferring to stay focused on our backyard, but sometimes issues affect us all and we feel the need to call attention to these two stories that recently came across our desk.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: The Shelbyville Horse Show

    A 25th anniversary is nothing to scoff at. Proudly noted with a precious metal, the Silver Anniversary is difficult to obtain in marriage, work and many other areas of life.

    But just making it though 25 years isn’t what makes the Shelbyville Horse Show’s run amazing, it’s the cultural impact it has left on the community in that time.

    Since its inception, the Shelbyville Horse Show has grown from a meeting of those in the horse industry to the must attend event of the year in Shelbyville.

    Periodically Hillsdale College in Michigan sends me a new letter containing a speech recently given to the student body, and a request for funds.

    It is not done surreptitiously; students and parents know this is going on. At my alma mater there was only one economic theory discussed and that was Keynesian as espoused by Samuelsson – never a word about Adam Smith, Burke, or Rose and Milton Freidman. 

  • MY WORD: Why secular invocation is important
  • MY WORD: Cautions against court-led legislation
  • MY WORD: Focusing on a commonsense approach

    Several months, an otherwise pleasant evening was suddenly ruined when I stepped onto wet carpet in the basement of our home. Heavy rains had put our sump pump to the test and it finally failed. The water rose and soon our entire basement was in danger of being soaked.
